He had a classy look in ‘Leader’, he was extraordinary as Bhallaladeva in ‘Baahubali’ while in ‘Nene Raju Nene Mantri’ he impressed as a political leader. Rana Daggubati is now becoming a part of NTR biopic. In the movie being made under the direction of Krish, Rana is playing key role of Chandrababu. He has already joined NTR biopic shooting and is said to be working hard for Chandrababu’s role. He has reportedly lost considerable weight for this role. For the role of Bhallaladeva, Rana had put on weight and now for Chandrababu role, he has lost weight. Rana said that he is working hard to look exactly as Chandrababu.
The actor said that since he played Bhallaladeva in ‘Baahubali’, he had to increase his weight but now that he is doing Chandrababu’s role and this needs a change he worked hard to shed the weight. For ‘Baahubali’ he had developed biceps but now for NTR biopic he has become leaner. Since nobody knew about Bhallaladeva, Rajmouli projected him with muscular body and this was liked by the audience. But now everybody knows about Chandrababu. If I don’t look ditto like him, audience will not connect with that role. Rana has thus given clarity as to how Krish will be showing him as Chandrababu.
The shooting of NTR biopic under the direction of Krish and Balakrishna as hero is progressing briskly. Rana is already participating in the shooting of NTR biopic. He says his role will be completed with the shooting for some more days. Vidya Balan is playing Basvatarakam in this movie while Rakul Preet Singh will be seen as Sridevi. Senior leaders like Mohan Babu and Naresh will also be part of NTR biopic. This film will be released as Sankranti gift for the audience
